In March 2016, the RSCDS Paris Branch published its first dance collection entitled The Paris Book of Scottish Country Dances, vol. 1. All Paris Book dances have been devised by dancers from the Paris branch.

The book is available on the RSCDS Leeds Branch online shop.


Most dances published in the Paris Book have an original tune composed by one of our dancer musicians. The sheet music to the dances are not included in the printed version of the book but they can be downloaded freely from the Paris Book companion website.
